The Pee Dee River Basin (also called the Great Pee Dee River) encompasses twenty-seven (27) watersheds and 3,425 square miles within South Carolina, excluding the Lynches River and the Black River (which are part of the Pee Dee River Basin). The Pee Dee River flows across the Sandhills region to the Upper and Lower Coastal Plain regions and into the Coastal Zone region. The Pee Dee River Basin includes over one million acres. There are approximately 3,472 stream miles, 9,969 acres of lake waters, and 1,522 acres of estuarine areas.

The Pee Dee River flows across the North Carolina/South Carolina state line and accepts drainage from Thompson Creek, Crooked Creek, Cedar Creek, Three Creeks, and Black Creek. It then accepts drainage from Jeffries Creek, Catfish Creek, the Lynches River Basin, and the Little Pee Dee River, and the Black River Basin before draining into the Winyah Bay at Georgetown.
